Radio show done. I'll post the tracklist after I sleep. (And after I figure out what to say).
Really weird show tonight. Good tracks, mediocre-to-bad mixing. I think I'll rework the set and play it at the arcade next week.
Night of the spambots on SDF Mastodon. :(
@salixlucida CBC Radio did a great interview with Greg Girard and one other person a year or so ago. Let me find it... here:
"Dark Tower of Dreams: Inside The Walled City of Kowloon"
Interview of Greg Girard and Suenn Ho by Paul Kennedy. It's worth the hour if you haven't heard it before.
One of these days I'll pick up a copy of Girard's book.
With all this talk about #Electro music in the press lately, I present to you my personal opinion on the history of the genre. The 2.5 hour mix starts in 1978 and works its way through the years, documenting an important track for (almost) every year up to 2016. Chronologically ordered and ready for your consumption. Enjoy!
@radian That can be an issue, for sure.
If you're interested in digging into the style, this post on reddit's r/witchhouse is particularly useful:
One label stands out as particularly high-profile and active: Phantasma Disques
My favorite release I've found in the small amount of time I've spent looking is:
Those are my notes so far; I'm waiting until I have a bit of extra cash in my music budget to do more exploring.

Electro and IDM this week. I needed to play that Lanark Artefax track that's been going around, and cobbled a set together to get there. Ends with me cheating by playing Puzl by Gescom in full. Good times.
"A Not So Brief History of Electro, Part One" by Steve Mizek
Found on reddit's r/electro. Covers 1980s #electro . Posting so I'll remember to look for part 2. '80s electro is well covered in the music press (I think). '90s and '00s receives much less attention, so hopefully part 2 will be good.
